For the past decade, photographer Jonathan Higbee has been photographing the streets of New York. In the chaos of the busy city, he manages to capture the fleeting moments of perfect coincidences. Thanks to his keen eye for these moments, he has created a series of photos that show fantastic and amusing coincidences.
I’m not big on “capture the moment”. It just sounds so lame and cliché – accidental even.
Plus the whole idea of capturing the moment is ridiculous. I mean, as if I am ever going to be in just the right place, with just the right equipment, with just the right models, wearing just the right clothes, with just the right light, at just the right time…?
Well as it turns out, every once in a while you can capture the moment!
Like an infinite number of monkeys on an infinite number of typewriters, an infinite number of photographers snapping an infinite number of photos will sooner or later produce something worth viewing.
But who wants to be just another monkey?
